Radiotherapy Systems, Linear Accelerator, Intraoperative

Definition : adiotherapy systems designed to administer ionizing radiation during a surgical procedure by means of electron beams of varying energies and/or high-energy photons using a linear accelerator (linac) as a generator. These systems typically include a dedicated stationary linear accelerator, limiting its use to only one shielded operating room. The intraoperative linear accelerator main components are similar to standard linear accelerators (i.e., a modulator, an electron gun, a radio-frequency power source, and an accelerator guide); the electron beam is further collimated to the desired size by applicators inserted into the patient. Intraoperative radiotherapy systems are intended to provide a high dose of radiation in a single procedure with high target accuracy and low risk of damage to the adjacent tissues.
